On Thursday, July 30, join us for a conversation with Hon. Jason Copping, Minister of Labour and Immigration.
Recently, Minister Copping presented Bill 32, the Restoring Balance in Alberta’s Workplaces Act, which contains several changes to the Employment Standards Code and the Labour Relations Code. As the legislation aims to streamline rules and reduce red tape, hear directly from Minister Copping as he discusses how the changes in Bill 32 could not only save businesses time and money, but also support the creation of jobs in Alberta.
Following his discussion, the Minister will be taking questions from webinar attendees and all guests are invited to participate.
As proposed changes would impact both employers and employees alike, don’t miss out on this important conversation!
Please confirm your attendance by Wednesday, July 29 @ 4 PM.
We will be using the Zoom meeting platform for the webinar. A link to join will be sent out to all registrants 12-24 hours prior to the webinar via email. Please note that we are unable to do multiple registrations for our online experiences.
